STAMFORD - Some local businesses say they have seen a boom in sales of snow rakes since last week's storm

One such business is Keough's Paint and Hardware Store in Stamford.

The store says a new shipment arrived this morning and that they have sold more than 100 since Wednesday.

The rakes are used to prevent ice dams which happen when the snow on your roof begins to melt at mid-day, then refreezes later on.

That can cause water to leak through your roof and into your home.
